The Courts are Rockin’! ACTIVITY ON THE

tennis courts is at an all-time high, with nine women’s teams, cl i mb th e l ad d e r round robins, clinics, special events, and Member play! We are hoping to add supervised junior play, 1-on1 doubles on Friday evenings, and other programs to increase participation on the courts during our slower times. Our number one goal is to keep you happy and playing this great sport. We are here to serve and always welcome your suggestions to make our facility the best it can be. Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you on the courts!

Tennis Club Championships Beginning the week of Monday, January 13 The annual club championships are a great way to experience friendly competition without having to travel. Three divisions: Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles will be offered to both men and women Members. This year the matches will consist of the best two-out-ofthree sets and a “super-tiebreaker” for the third. A minimum of 4 players/teams is required to hold a division. The entry deadline is Wednesday January 8.

Shop for the Holidays! The Tennis Pro Shop is fully stocked with everything you need for the perfect gift this holiday season. We carry top-of-the-line product at great prices. We can fit you for a tennis racket or assist you in finding the perfect shoe – we have something for everyone on your list!

C LU B EV E N T R E S E RVAT I O N P O L I C Y Special club events, wine dinners, seafood buffets and holiday dining are popular events that sell out and require the purchase of special food and beverage products, equipment, entertainment, etc. Last minute un-replaced cancellations (including changes to the party number) are unfair to those Members who are turned away due to full capacity and cause the Club to incur unnecessary expenses if the reservation is not replaced. As a result, the Club must exercise a firm enforcement of the special event and holiday dining policy. • At the time of making your reservation we will charge your account 100% of the event price. Please let us know if you have other Members dining with you. • You may cancel 7 days prior to event, without being charged. • If you cancel less than 7 days prior to the event, you will have to pay 100% of the event price. Note: Should there be a wait list and we are able to fill your reservation less than 6 days prior to the event, your account will be credited in full.
